STIHL FS 240 C-E Petrol Brushcutter with ErgoStart (E)

The STIHL FS 240 C-E Petrol Brushcutter is highly durable, robust and ergonomically enhanced 1.7 kW brushcutter. ErgoStart simplified starting procedure for increased comfort. Powered by a low-emission, fuel-efficient STIHL 2-MIX engine. Ideal for agricultural and horticultural mowing work.


  • Reduced-emission engine technology - 2-stroke engine with stratified charge. A fuel-free layer of air is created between the burned charge in the combustion chamber and the fresh charge in the crankcase, reducing the amount of fuel lost during the charge cycle. This results in more power with a lower weight, up to 20% lower fuel consumption than regular 2-stroke engines and significantly reduced exhaust emissions.
  • Large fuel tank - The transparent fuel tank with a volume of 0.75 l ensures long working intervals with fewer fuel stops. The level is easily visible from the outside. Easy to refuel through a large, easily accessible tank opening.
  • Air filter with long service life - The easily accessible paper filter with a long service life means it can go for long intervals without changing.  
  • Winter setting slide control - It is quick and easy to switch the setting from winter to summer using the slide control. Using the winter setting will prevent the air filter and carburettor from freezing.
  • Manual fuel pump (Purger) - A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting strokes required following extended breaks in operations.
  • STIHL ErgoStart (E) - STIHL ErgoStart cuts the effort required to start the tool by half, while the starter cord can be pulled at just one-third of the normal force. A coil spring between the starter cord and the crankshaft smoothes out force peaks, making them virtually undetectable through the cord itself.
  • Simplified starting system - Simply set the choke, pump the fuel primer, pull the starter cord and away you go! The running machine then switches off after a brief press of the stop button. Once the machine is at a standstill, the ignition activates again automatically. Thus the ignition is always ready for starting.
  • Bike handle - When used in conjunction with a harness, the bike handle enables a smooth mowing action. The bike handle allows the machine to be easily guided, making it ideal for working on large areas and thus reducing fatigue.
  • Anti-vibration system - Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine's engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.
  • ADVANCE Universal Harness - Soft padding makes work more comfortable during longer jobs.
  • Multi-function control handles - Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator's hand never leaves the handle.
  • Compensator - This controller in the carburettor prevents the fuel-air mixture from getting richer as the air filter becomes clogged. The correct quantity of fuel is delivered to the carburettor depending on the quantity of air passing through the air filter. This keeps the fuel/air ratio in the combustion mixture constant and hence also the engine power. The filter doesn't need to be cleaned until an appreciable drop in power occurs.
  • Tool-free handles adjustment - The central wing nut enables easy adjustment without the use of tools. For transportation and space-saving storage, the handle can be rotated by 90 degrees.
